Steve Carell and Rose Byrne... make two wonderful and passionate arch enemies. [Full review in Spanish]

Surprisingly, Jon Stewart is weak on character development and original comedy. But the ending is effectively stunning, Frank Capra meets the Prez Drumpf era. Worth the wait.

Irresistible is as scathing as you'd expect from Stewart, but it's also unexpectedly hopeful in the end. It's not an easy balancing act in today's nihilistic 24 hour news cycle, but blending humor and humanity has always been Stewart's wheelhouse.

Some of these asides are poignant and fit the film's flow... but some, like a bunch of visual pranks on the audience, don't land, stylistic flourishes that end up feeling underdeveloped.

Oh, how we've missed you Jon Stewart.

Stewart brilliantly weaves together a succinct story the unveils what drives the political machine no matter where you live and which party you most readily identify.

Stewart's basic decency requires a fundamental belief that things can always get better. And if that tenet isn't completely irresistible, it really should be.

[Irresistible is] funny and pointed as it skewers both politics and the media, carefully resisting the temptation to take sides.

Reactions to this satire will likely be split along political lines - or your noted tolerance for intellectual sarcasm.

Irresistible won't lead to the overthrow of America's political system. But it may put a smile on your face. For now, that will just have to do.

The comedy isn't often laugh-out-loud funny, but it's intelligent in a way that fans of Stewart's The Daily Show will enjoy.

Thanks to warm direction, generally charming performances and some rich humor, it proves to be a mildly entertaining affair.
June 29, 2020
Irresistible's satirical storyline often feels a bit underdeveloped, but it's saved by the wonderfully funny jokes and comedic timing of Steve Carell.
June 29, 2020
But there's always value and power in laughter and Irresistible has enough tricks up its sleeve to work as a comedy with something worthwhile to say.
June 29, 2020
Irresistible is hugely diverting and sporadically profound. At the very end, though, it takes the path of least resistance and - dagnammit! - lets everyone off the hook.
June 28, 2020
Irresistible isn't bad but isn't quite good. It's a middle-of-the-road film in comedy, politics, and narrative...Fans of Carell's character work will be excited but those expecting a Daily Show bite will be disappointed.
June 28, 2020
The bottom line is that IRRESISTIBLE is not a hilarious comedy by any stretch. It is more of a tongue-in-cheek satire revealing a surprise twist at the end that is choreographed expertly by Stewart and his crew.
June 28, 2020
The final impression is of a thesis only partially expanded into satisfactory dramedy.
June 28, 2020
As a non-partisan response to the craziness of "this system, the way we elect people" (which is indeed "terrifying and exhausting"), it gets my vote.
June 27, 2020
It's a smart comedy that points out the flaws of all aspects of the United State's political landscape.
